With the Packers-Giants Wild Card game this Sunday, Jan. 8, the Packers are inviting fans to join the team in preparing for the playoffs.
This year is the eighth straight year the Packers have earned the opportunity to play in the postseason, and the Packers are urging fans to celebrate and join in the excitement with different fan initiatives to take part in each day this week.
To kick off the week, the team offered up Mailing Monday. Fans of all ages are encouraged to send mail to the team through the “Letters to Lambeau” program. Letters and drawings submitted may be featured on Packers.com, through the Packers’ social media accounts and near the locker room for players to see.
Those interested in submitting letters or drawings can visit http://packers.com/letters and download the templates to create custom messages to players and the team. Submissions can be sent through email at firstname.lastname@example.org, dropped off at the Lambeau Field Atrium at the guest services desk or the Packers Pro Shop, or mailed to Letters to Lambeau, PO Box 13092, Green Bay, WI 54307.
The next day, Paint the Town Tuesday, will help demonstrate Packers pride throughout northeast Wisconsin. Fans are encouraged to keep an eye out for “Get Loud Lambeau” window cling stickers outside of local businesses, schools and public buildings.
On Wednesday, fans can participate in Win It Wednesday, with opportunities throughout the day to win Packers gear and giveaway items through the Packers’ social media accounts. Fans can win prizes such as a pair of tickets to Sunday’s game, an Ariens Sno-Thro, a Packers custom jersey and a Get Loud Lambeau prize package.
The following day, Thank You Thursday, the team will show fans how grateful they are for the constant and unwavering support of the Packers community. Videos, photographs and selected messages from Monday’s “Letters to Lambeau” initiative will be posted on Packers.com and through the Packers’ social media accounts throughout the day to express the organization’s appreciation for Packers fans.
On Friday, fans are asked to celebrate Green and Gold Friday by wearing green and gold or Packers gear at school, at work, in their homes and in the community, and are invited to keep the celebration going on Saturday for a free Packers Everywhere pep rally at 6 p.m. at Lambeau Field’s Tundra Tailgate Zone.
Saturday’s pep rally will feature Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy and fans at the event will have the opportunity to win giveaway items and greet various Packers alumni. Packers.com’s Mike Spofford and Wes Hodkiewicz will preview the next day’s game to conclude the event.
